M12 Spoilers 7

Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

We are only on day two of the official Magic the Gathering previews of the new core set Magic 2012 and we have seen some very decent cards produced by Wizards of the Coast. To ensure you are kept up to date on the latest card goodness, check out our Magic 2012 spoiler list HERE which we will endeavour to keep up to date.

For today, as the post is unimaginatively titled 'M12 Spoilers 7, we have for you seven new cards which is sure to rock your game whatever format that tickles your fancy - enuff yattering and let's go . . .

Aegis Angel, 4
Creature - Angel, Rare
When Aegis Angel enters the battlefield, another target permanent is indestructible for as long as you control Aegis Angel.
Illus. Aleksi Briclot #1/249

This art rocks and should be sufficient enough reason to play this. If you want the foily goodness, then grab the
/ Intro Pack. There could be some decent situational plays to be had but on the whole we're calling it just OK for now and not crazy good.

Personal Sanctuary, 2
Enchantment, Rare
During your turn, prevent all damage that would be dealt to you.
"There is a place deep within my soul where no foe can intrude and no tyrant can conquer." - Sarlena, Paladin of the Northern Verge Illus. Howard Lyon #30/249

This again is just OK but still slightly better than OK for your game should you pack your parachute and keep this in your sideboard against red burn.

Phantasmal Image, 1
Creature - Illusion, Rare
You may have Phantasmal Image enter the battlefield as a copy of any creature on the battlefield, except it's an Illusion in addition to its other types and it gains "When this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability, sacrifice it."
Illus. Nils Hamm #72/249

This is very nice. This card almost makes us to want to build a standard constructed around the illusion Lord, Lord of the Unreal (copying the lord of course) - but we know that's a trap.

Visions of Beyond,
Instant, Rare
Draw a card. If a graveyard has twenty or more cards in it, draw three cards instead.
"The past is the foundation for all that exists in the present. We merely reconstruct what our ancestors have already discovered." - Sachimir, Sage of Memories Illus. Terese Nielsen #80/249

If the rumours hold true that the next block, Innistrad will have a graveyard theme to it, we suggest you hedge your be and pick a few of these up now. This should be rather good in dredge and promises to draw you a impressive number of cards late game.

Mind Unbound, 4
Enchantment, Rare
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a lore counter on Mind Unbound, then draw a card for each lore counter on Mind Unbound.
The creations of the hand are confined by reality. The creations of the mind know no such limits.
Illus. Jason Felix #68/249

Anything that uses a 'lore counter' should be cool, right? Yep - this one is very cool. A bit expensive but perhaps with a bit of acceleration and a dash of proliferate, you might be rather pleased with this. We smell some casual mtg fun with Psychosis Crawler.

Druidic Satchel, 3
Artifact Rare
: Reveal the top card of your library. If it's a creature card, put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token onto the battlefield. If it's a land card, put that card onto the battlefield under your control. If it's a noncreature, nonland card, you gain 2 life.
Illus. Matt Stewart #207/249

You know that whatever you reveal will give you something - a chump saproling, a free land play or some life - we say not bad at all. The drawback of course is showing your opponent(s) what badness you will want to hit them with which now could set you up for some sad counterspells.

Buried Ruin
Land, Uncommon
: Add 1 to your mana pool.
, Sacrifice Buried Ruin: Return target artifact card from your graveyard to your hand.
History has buried its treasures deep. Illus. Franz Vohwinkel #224/249

Given that we just rolled through an artifact block, we can see that this will immediately get shoved into decks players are playing right now. We like that this can bring back our fav equipments which may have been nuked.

Anywhoos - we want you to check out the cards and pump it or dump it in the comment thingy below. Don't forget to enter our Commander give-away contest.

Lastly - a very kewl contest (coming to an end at the end of the month) run by our friends over at MTG Mint Card
